Actor Tony Shalhoub revealed on Peacock’s The At-Home Variety Show on May 11 that he and his wife Brooke Adams are recovering from coronavirus.  

In the episode, Shalhoub discussed his character, Adrian Monk, on the television show, Monk. In the series, the character is a detective who is germaphobic and living with obsessive compulsive disorder. Shalhoub compared playing this character to his experience with the coronavirus. “I hope you are all being careful and following the protocol,” he said. “We really are all Monk now. Last month, my wife Brooke and I came down with the virus, and it was a pretty rough few weeks. But we realize that so many other people have and had it a lot worse.” 

Currently, Shalhoub is still practicing social distancing with his wife in New York City. “Time to go out and show our appreciation to all our heroes – the health care workers, the first responders,” he said. “Let’s go. Stay safe and stay sane.”

Monk aired on NBC for eight seasons from 2002 to 2009. On The At-Home Variety Show video, former Monk actors are featured, including Traylor Howard as Natalie Teeger, Ted Levine as Capt. Stottlemeyer and Jason Gray-Stanford as Randy Disher.

This was the premiere of The AtHome Variety Show, which is hosted by Seth MacFarlane and is currently focusing on raising money to support frontline caretakers, essential workers and communities that have been impacted by the coronavirus.


The show is also set to have appearances made by stars such as Chelsea Handler, Kevin Hart, D’Arcy Carden and Elizabeth Banks.
